Arcata Recycling Center Cuts Hours

See. The glut of recyclables I posted on not long ago has affected us up here so I think it could be possible that it could affect local recycling efforts.

Take that, Eric! Eric suggested earlier that the low, if not non- existent, prices for recyclables shouldn't have any effect on Eureka's soon- to- be mandatory recycling program. Of course, there's still time, so maybe I gloat too soon?

I can't help but snicker at the recycling center's executive director's reasoning for the glut in recyclables: It's because we buy too many things.


Well, he says that because we buy so many things, manufacturers overproduce until there's a surplus of commodities that causes prices to fall. The recycling guy blaming manufacturers. Whatever.

I read in a local newspaper a couple of weeks ago, that Arcata Recycling had a variable rate bond and it's interest rate has gone up sharply.

Maybe this is where the plastic goes.
